So I'm trying to build a cheap (under $600) computer to play Skyrim and BF3 on. I have about $150-$180 to spend on a GPU. I wanted to know if I should get this card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Is there another card that's better that I could spend my money on?

These cards might be a better choice to go with if you are going to be playing BF3 , since that game is very graphics card demanding and in order to get good fps you will need a good video card. Skyrim is not as demanding and you can get away with less card.

I would go for the first card inzone suggested. You are not missing out on much from the double fan cooler, both will do their job.
